Excitement around Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill in UK rises, as tomorrow Friday July 18 the bill will have its second reading in the House of Lords. In the a-foregoing period a number of relevant individuals have either publicly again affirmed their position in favour or even admitted to have changed their opinion, like Desmond Tutu and former Archbishop Lord Carey. Read about their motives here:
Lord Carey according to BBC News, that he has dropped his opposition to the Assisted Dying Bill “in the face of the reality of needless suffering”. But the current Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has called the bill “mistaken and dangerous”.
Desmond Tutu has said he would support assisted dying for the terminally ill. He said he reveres “the sanctity of life but not at any cost”. See BBC News website
